Religious Focus: Brian Alexander : Gone To Survey Heavenly Plots

Resent: Brian Alexander's image in photo frame with Urn at his funeral, September 2017.

He surveyed many a plots on earth, straightened out numerous kinks, drove many a an identification marks, helped to fulfill countless dreams and to secure even contentious siblings and dreamers of a loved one’s legacy.  Tired of traversing desolate bushes, he has turned to the plot of all plots for solace, retirement and refreshment … a heavenly home to be with his Maker.

Archdeacon Justin Nembhard, rector, said inter alia, “Brian Alexander was very supportive of the church and contributed both professionally to its development and spiritual growth.” Hundreds if not thousands mourned his transition … September 9, 2017 at the St. James Parish Church,  Montego Bay, St. James, Jamaica W.I. as the crowd of teary eyed mourners could not find a seat in the church so they milled outside just to be there.

Mrs. Valerie Alexander careies the ashes of Late surveyor Brian Alexander.


Valerie Alexander, his distraught wife has been his soul mate, supporter and loyal companion for 51 years … she was dignified in grief but visibly broken as she along with her 95 year old mother, daughter Tracey and son Matthew, and other siblings listened to the glowing tributes. Later Valerie, with grief written over her face carried his ashes to the Peace Garden for internment. “I have known Brian for 51 years and we were married for 48 years.” as she (Valerie) fought to hold back the tears.

Vision’s SIC traveled over 200 kilometers to be at the church to mourn Brian Alexander’s passing. “It was the least I could do for a great humanitarian and Jamaican.” Rest in peace Brian.
